I've been feeling a little poorly the last couple days. So here are a few short videos of my brothers work.

Spent the day prepping and painting the wheels.
Put several coats of Ford silver and then clear coated.

I've made a little more progress on the car. I am repairing the areas around the floor and rockers to prep to receive the new panels. Tim is going back to Ohio next week and will look at some used front foot box panels to see if I can use them. If not I have made a buck to form new ones.
Enjoy the video...Ken

We hit Tim's goal of getting a rolling chassis. Looking good.

After a week of resting up after my brother went back home I we tired of sitting around in the easy chair so I'm out in the shop again...

This video is part one of the rocker and floor replacement:

In this video I've decided to make the floor pan toe panel. It requires me to make a wooden buck to put the vertical stampings in that you saw in the first video.
This is part one on it also.

My brother is returning in a couple of weeks so I've done some work before he shows up.
This is the lower foot box repair that I need to have done before I install the inner and outer rocker panels and floor.
